5 Things We Learned from Nick Foles' Regular-Season Debut
Mark L. Baer-US PRESSWIRE

Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback took things over Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys after Michael Vick left the game with a concussion, and the results were a mixed bag. 

The Eagles front office selected Foles out of Arizona in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft to be the eventual replacement for Vick and to the quarterback of the future, but head coach Andy Reid and Co. likely didn't think the future would be now. 

Philadelphia would go on to lose 38-23 to the Cowboys, but he looked good considering he didn't get a chance to practice all week as the starter. 

Foles finished with 219 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the losing effort for the Eagles. He was great at times, but he clearly made some rookie mistakes that held back Philadelphia. 

With Foles first official playing time as the starter for the Eagles, let's take some time to review how he performed.
